    I wish I had Committed too (book or cd).

    I have to say that it’s a bit laughable that you’re banned from taking out library material. lol

    I really liked Eat Pray Love too…I can not wait to see the movie. I adore Julia Roberts and think she is perfect for this role. I am going to see it with my mama! 🙂

    Haha you can’t get a library card? I bet that’s an interesting story! Books on tape are my new fav way to get through long car trips.

    I’m about to start Committed. I’m excited about reading it because I also love her no-nonsense, tell it like it is approach.

    But…. you have a boyfriend who can get a library card! I use my mom’s all the time.

    I think there should be time you can go back and get a card. Maybe they will forget. Good luck.

      except the boyfriend lives in Tampa, which really doesn’t help. 🙂

    Haha, now I’m intrigued as to why you’re (banned?) from the library!! 🙂

    Oooh you must have been starving! The salad looks great though (minus the green beans :p) – good combinations!
    I can’t wait to see the film of that book – I think Julia Roberts is perfect for it 🙂

    I read “Committed.” I really liked it, but beware, it’s pretty different from Eat, Pray, Love. Lots of information on marriage, not quite as much on herself. Very interesting, but doesn’t have quite the same, “I want to pack my things and move to Italy/Bali IMMEDIATELY!!!” feel to it. Oh, and for the record, it’s been a year since I read EPL for the second time and I still want to pack my things and move to Italy or Bali (probably not India, even though I liked that part of the book) IMMEDIATELY. Things are going to get really tough after I see the movie. I already know. 🙂

    haha, you’re such a rebel. mmm, those libraries! they have some funky rules…i can’t only imagine what you did. do you have a collection of non-returned books piled up in your living room?

    i really enjoyed eat pray love. i think julia will be stunning in the role!

    my library has committed in stock to listen to. i’d be more than tickled to send it your way. but i’m alllll the way in pennsylvania. if you can’t get your hands on it any other way, let me know!

    Agree with Katie above! A different and much more boring, educational book. The beginning and end were ok. She is scared of marriage, must marry him or never see him again. Whole book spent listening to her indecisiveness and research on marriage. And you probably know how it ends.
    Loved EPL, can’t wait for movie. Committed, not so much.

    Hehe… I laughed out loud at my desk at your “no library card comment” — I agree with Kelly that it must be a good story 🙂 Although I am still in possession of a card, I think I may be singlehandedly building another wing our library with all my library fines … sigh…

    I am still working through EPL (I’m reading it before bed and am stuck in India … ) and haven’t yet read “Committed” — but I’ll be excited to hear what you think 🙂 Also, the salad looks awesome — perfectly cold, crunchy & summery!

    I’m glad you liked the book! I’ve been thinking of reading it, and now maybe I’ll pick it up. 🙂

    Oh no… banned from checking out books?!?! That’s gotta be a good story! And if you want so share, I promise I won’t judge… I’ll just laugh WITH you! 😉

    Wow what can you do to get banned?

    Maybe Derek can get it for you?

    My stomach growls uncontrollably when I run! It’s a different kind of hunger than other exercise causes!

    I just finished the book Committed for book club. I did not enjoy it as much as I did Eat, Pray, Love. Sorry I don’t have the audio version though.

    I’m definitely anxious about my upcoming race. Next Wednesday I’m doing a trail marathon in Mongolia. I’ve been putting in the mileage, but I live at sea level in Okinawa while the base camp is at 5400 feet and the race goes up from there. My inability to altitude train has me nervous. I know we’ll both finish our races though!! 🙂

    That salad sounds delicious! I’m in the process of reading Eat, Pray, Love and it’s so good!

    Glad you loved Eat Pray Love! I’m re-reading it before the movie comes out and some woman on my train the other day was bad-mouthing it. It pissed me off! I also read Committed and thought it was pretty good – very different from EPL and much more about marriage than her personal life.

    um… I recently had to pay a $50 library fine. I was actually really scared bc when I remembered about it was a week before we were closing on our house and I was scared that it would go on my credit and we would lose our loan and my husband would have been soo (rightfully) pissed!

    What a tasty looking salad!!!

    No judgement about libraries. I actually finished Committed two months ago but sadly I borrowed it from the library. I actually might have liked it more than EPL even though it wasn’t as much about her personal life. She is just a likable and relatable author and says lots of things that just make sense about marriage. You could try used book sites like Alibris. Wouldn’t it be awesome if bloggers could exchange books on a huge scale?!

    I loved Eat Pray Love so much!!!! Although I will admit, the India portion did take willower to continue reading. I don’t think it was just your book on tape. :/. Regardless, the rest of it was so inspiring!!!

    Glad to hear you liked Eat Pray Love. I have wanted to read that ; )

    I was at the dentist the other day, and my stomach was growling…so embarrassing! haha

    I was a much bigger fan of Committed than Eat Pray Love. Like a lot of people said, the Eat part was great, the Pray part bored me! I really like how honest and straight forward she is in Committed and the story really moves along nicely. I couldn’t put it down!
